A new grader and dozer control system is offered by MOBA
Sophisticated dozer and grader control can be achieved with the new MOBA system
MOBA is offering a sophisticated control system for use with bulldozers and graders available in both 2D and 3D format. The company says that its 3D-matic package offers precise and versatile levelling control for graders and dozers and which can also be used as a 2D system if necessary. Marketing manager Christine Seidel said, “This system moves the blade. Our mindset is to make it easy to use for the operator. It’s different from the competition which focus on tonnages as this is focussed on the machine and the operator.”
She said that the MOBA 3D-matic package helps increase efficiency and speeds working on-site. The compact controller combines 2D and 3D computers in a single housing, with the display and sensors designed for use in 3D and 2D applications. Planning data is delivered in 3D format to the system through a data carrier and the package determines the position of the machine using a GNSS sensor or a total station. The controller compares the machine position against design data and calculates any deviations making corrections quickly and precisely to the blade controller. The system is said to feature simple and straightforward menu navigation on the display and uses rugged components suited for use on construction sites, while it is modular so that customers can upgrade the 2D levelling tool to 3D functionality.
